Then, to fix the now empty Transportation Fund O'Malley raised gas tax and tolls on the working and middle-class to pay a second time for transportation infrastructure. Now, voting Republican won't fix this as this is Republican policy. Maximizing corporate profits always means the working and middle-class will pay more in fines, fees, and taxes.
THERE MUST BE A COMMISSION FOR THAT!
Below you see just one of ongoing fraud and corruption in transportation----they always allow the fraud done by low level employees hit the media -----but billions of dollars in Transportation Fund fraud and corruption at the top levels of government happen every year. This low-level fraud cuts into what can be stolen at the higher level after all and must be stopped! In order for corruption and fraud to be systemic by the billions----pols have to turn their heads to the same for low-level employees.
City misconduct revealed in inspector general's report Auction scheme is latest to beset towing industry
By Luke Broadwater, The Baltimore Sun 11:37 p.m. EDT, September 3, 2014
A city transportation manager forged documents to give $22,000 to his friends and family — instead of the motorists who were owed the cash after the city auctioned their cars.
The theft, revealed this week in an inspector general's annual report, is the latest case of misconduct in Baltimore's scandal-plagued towing industry.
Babatunde Yussuf, the city's deputy chief of towing operations, pleaded guilty to theft after an investigation last year and was ordered to repay $22,507 to the city, according to Inspector General Robert H. Pearre Jr.
"Towing is an industry where people have a lot of opportunities to take advantage," said City Councilman Robert Curran, a watchdog on towing issues.
Three years ago, a federal investigation into a towing kickback scheme ensnared dozens of police officers. The officers illegally referred the owners of broken-down and damaged vehicles to a Rosedale body shop in exchange for cash. Sixteen were convicted and others suspended as a result of the probe.
In the auction scheme, Yussuf altered vehicle owner information for impounded vehicles sold by the city. Under city rules, if vehicles fetch a higher price at auction than the fees and expenses owed to the city, the money is supposed to be refunded to the vehicle's title owner.
Yussuf changed city documents to indicate that his friends and family owned seven different vehicles, and he tried to obtain refunds totaling more than $32,000, the inspector general found. The inspector general's investigators were able to stop two of the disbursements of about $10,000, the report said.
Yussuf could not be reached for comment.
His case was one of several investigations into the misuse of city funds revealed in the report.
In another a case involving the city's transportation department, an unnamed office supervisor worked compensatory time, as approved by her supervisor, and then submitted the hours as paid overtime. The ruse resulted in a loss to the city of $13,726, according to the inspector general.
As a result, the manager was fired. The state's attorney's office declined to prosecute the case, but the city's law department is considering a civil lawsuit to recover the funds, according to the report.
Neither Yussuf nor the manager was named in the report, which contained few details. Pearre provided Yussuf's name in an interview. He said investigative reports on both cases would be available "very soon."
Under the previous inspector general, summaries of investigative reports were posted online as the cases were concluded.
Curran and Jennifer Bevan-Dangel, director of the government watchdog group Common Cause Maryland, said both cases should have been disclosed earlier.
"If they are reports on public officials and public money, then the public has a right to know," Bevan-Dangel said. "The more transparency, the better."
Pearre, who started work last year, said more information wasn't disclosed earlier in part because he was focused on staffing the office and tackling a backlog of cases. He had one agent on his team when he took the job; now there are five. He also said he has to wait on prosecutors to make their case before he can release information.
Pearre added that his team is making progress on investigations of the Mayor's Office of Information Technology, whose director resigned in June amid allegations that the department paid contractual employees for work they may not have performed, and of the city's speed cameras, some of which were troubled with high error rates.
"We had huge backlog of several hundred cases," Pearre said. "We've rebuilt the office into a productive unit. We are now firing on all eight cylinders."
Pearre's report also highlights an investigation of a city accountant accused of fraudulently issuing $73,227 in benefits checks. The accountant, Denita Hill, 25, resigned from city government and was indicted by a federal grand jury.
Hill and alleged co-conspirator Robert Johnson, 32, of Perry Hall were charged with conspiracy, wire fraud and identity theft. While Pearre's report includes few details of the case, federal prosecutors issued a news release about the indictments in May.
According to the U.S. attorney's office, Hill was responsible for issuing checks for unused sick and vacation days owed to Baltimore employees who left their jobs.
She requested that checks for large lump sum payments be reissued, as if they had not been received, prosecutors said, and the duplicate checks bore a forged endorsement, "Pay to the Order of Robert Johnson." He then deposited the funds into his bank account, prosecutors said.
Neither Hill nor Johnson, both of whom pleaded not guitly, could be reached for comment.
The inspector general's report noted that the office recovered much less money through its investigations last year than in previous fiscal years — $65,000 compared with $538,000 in 2012.
Pearre said that's because his office is conducting "complex multi-year cases" that will be reach fruition in the future.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said she didn't know enough details to comment on whether information should have been released earlier, but she commended Pearre's work.
"A lot of the work they do doesn't involve the recovery of funds at all, but it's very useful work," Rawlings-Blake said. "I'm interested in having an inspector general who operates independently. I think we have that. He doesn't have a revenue goal. He has a performance goal of consistently and transparently rooting out corruption, misconduct, fraud and abuse in city government."
The key words here are 'professional'---that is Bill Clinton's code word for Wall Street control. In Maryland, most state contracts now go to national and global corporations which then subcontract to Maryland small business owners-----forcing them to bid so low as to allow them to earn little profit while sending huge profits to these global and national corporations. Remember, we used to have government engineers and architectual design employees that had life-long careers, were paid well, and worked in the public interest. Neo-liberals and neo-cons hate that kind of efficiency----they need to create the environment for constant change, no accountability, and huge losses of public revenue from a trail of operations that look like Wall Street complex financial instruments to make this corruption hard to track.
Global corporation VEOLA is the big winner in Transportation Trust money.
Bids for $100,000.00 or more must be accompanied with a bid security of 5% of the total bid amount. This can be in the form of a Bid Bond, Certified Check, Cashier’s Check or Cash. If your firm is the low bidder, Performance and Payment Bonds of 100% of the bid amount are required in order to execute the contract.
You notice vacancies on this powerful board. Let's look at who was appointed:
TRANSPORTATION PROFESSIONAL SERVICES SELECTION BOARD
Vacancy, Executive Secretary (410) 865-1386 Appointed by Governor to 5-year terms:
Michelle N. Lipkowitz, Esq., Chair (chosen by Board), 2017
Benjamin E. Beavin, Jr., 2017; Steven P. Watson, Dept. of Transportation; one vacancy.
The Transportation Professional Services Selection Board was authorized in 1974 (Chapter 732, Acts of 1974). When a contract exceeds $100,000, the Board makes recommendations to the Board of Public Works on the award of contracts for architectural or engineering services needed by the Department. Actions of the Selection Board are governed by the Maryland Procurement of Architectural and Engineering Services Act - Transportation Agencies (Code State Finance and Procurement Article, secs. 13-301 through 13-323) and the requirements of the State Procurement Regulations (COMAR 21.12.02). The Board has four members. The Governor appoints two members to five-year terms and, upon recommendation of the Secretary of Transportation, selects one from the Department of Transportation. The Secretary of Transportation serves ex officio. On recommendation of the Secretary the Governor may name an alternate.
This is what a Transportation Professional Board does----fulfills some pay-to-play reason to award a contract. If you notice Maryland is all about connecting with Texas corporations and politics. How does a supposedly 'progressive' blue state relate to raging neo-conservative red state Texas? Well, it's about global corporations and not Democrat vs Republican.
Below you see a global corporation receiving this transportation award for surveillance. None of this brings jobs to Maryland----none of this brings the ability of oversight and accountability----the ease of prosecuting goes out the door with these international deals. As important-----who are the shareholders of these global corporations?
THAT IS WHAT DECIDES MARYLAND'S TRANSPORTATION AWARDS AS DOES ALL MARYLAND CONTRACT BIDS.
Johns Hopkins is closely connected to Texas firms as they exchange contract awards.
Bringing Texas workers to Maryland to install these surveillance systems---well, we had to----our workers are trained for this job!

Below is a website post that should be visited as I cannot post all here. It shows how corporations are going to pay directly into a transportation fund identified as 'corporate taxes'. This is always referred to as the corporation's contribution to these projects. All of the MDOT agencies shown----BWI airport, buses and small public transport-----Port of Baltimore have been P3ed to the detriment of public taxpayers and workers.
Did you notice any real problem when State and City Public works did these jobs? The quality seemed good enough. If you look at what we pay now for outsourcing to these 'professional' corporations the costs for similar work has risen considerably. Meanwhile workers connected to these P3 partnerships went from middle-class public sector to private and poverty.
As we see below-----these corporations get all of the power of development with citizens relegated to 'commenting' and we all know there is no oversight regardless of what is said below.
MARYLAND’S TRANSPORTATION TRUST FUND AND P3 LAW
PRESENTED BY:DAVIDFLEMINGDIRECTOR, MDOT-OFFICE OF FINANCE
Maryland’s P3 Definition
Method for delivering public infrastructure assets using a long-term, performance-based agreement between a Reporting Agency and a Private Entity where appropriate risks and benefits can be allocated in a cost-effective manner between the contractual partners in which: Private Entity performs functions normally undertaken by the government, but the Reporting Agency remains ultimately accountable for the public infrastructure asset and its public function; andState may retain ownership in the public infrastructure asset and the private entity may be given additional decision-making rights in determining how the asset is financed, developed, constructed, operated and maintained over its lifecycle
You know your Maryland Transportation Commission is not doing its job if the entire state is demanding accountability of the Transportation Trust.
O'Malley appoints Trivedi to Maryland Transportation Commission
Below you see Trivedi is tied to a global corporation connected to Johns Hopkins and this is why he was appointed to this commission. He uses the Transportation Fund just as we see it used in Baltimore ----pay-to-play awards that will promote these Maryland global corporations. Remember, all of these DOD taxpayer funded research are being patented by universities awarded these contracts and these are the result----corporations that are now being spun off as billion dollar global corporations. These corporations may be headquartered in Maryland but manufacturing -----perhaps India?

Below you see one Maryland transportation committee pushing good legislation but if you look closer it is not for the reasons given. Greater Baltimore Committee knows that Baltimore has plenty of misdirected transportation fund projects. What it is fighting is the consistent sending of Maryland Transportation Trust funds to Montgomery County and Washington Beltway transportation development leaving the rest of the state with limited or no transportation projects. This is a neo-liberal policy that sees the Beltway counties of Montgomery and Prince George's as Maryland's economic engine. It is called building Medieval City-States.
Acknowledging the looting of Trusts is always good. You do not see any request for oversight and accountability from this Greater Baltimore Committee----just the lock box. The money will be funneled inappropriately no matter the lock if oversight and accountability is not rebuilt in Maryland.
Don Fry: Here's why voters should support a constitutional amendment to ban transportation fund raids
Aug 22, 2014, 2:52pm EDT Updated: Aug 22, 2014, 3:04pm EDT
Jaclyn Borowski Don Fry, the CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee, for years has been pushing for a ban on raids to the state transportation fund.
Rick SeltzerStaff reporter- Baltimore Business Journal Email Greater Baltimore Committee President Donald C. Fry wants to make it harder for state legislators to raid transportation funds — and he wants voters' help.
Fry is backing a state constitutional amendment set to appear on ballots Nov. 4. that would establish a lockbox of sorts for Maryland's Transportation Trust Fund. If ratified by voters, the amendment would keep the state from shifting money out of the trust fund unless it was going toward local governments for highway use or to the Maryland Transportation Authority.
The lockbox would be important because lawmakers have a history of borrowing money earmarked for transportation to make up for budget shortfalls, Fry said Friday. That money is often paid back into the transportation fund. But the act of borrowing it is disruptive, he said.
"Transportation projects do require long-term planning and are usually paid for over an extended period of time," Fry said. "So you want to have a solid, sustainable amount of money in the trust fund, and whenever moneys are taken from that, that certainly limits some of the spending you'd like to have in the future."
The GBC, an organization of business and civic leaders, has backed a lockbox provision for years. It has also traditionally been supportive of transportation funding, even spending $50,000 on advertisements supporting transit funding in 2007.
"We think it's critically important that we have adequate transportation funds, because that does make for a competitive business environment to have a strong transportation system with a reliable, dependable revenue source," Fry said. "This is something you have to be paying constant attention to so you can meet demands."
Counties furious over Maryland raid of transportation fund
Ben Giles • | March 31, 2012 at 7:00 PM Washington Examiner
ANNAPOLIS - County leaders and transportation officials are outraged over the Maryland Department of Transportation's assertion that the state has repaid all the money borrowed from the state's Transportation Trust Fund.
Roughly $947.5 million was transferred from the Maryland Transportation Trust Fund in local highway user revenues to the state general fund to help balance the budget between 2003 and 2011. None of that has been transferred back, according to the state's Blue Ribbon Commission on Transportation Funding.
Yesterday I showed Maryland Department of Natural Resources being outed for pretending to do projects to develop outside recreational venues when they spent much money on inside private recreation business development. Well, imagine what Transportation Enhancement funding goes to. I know lots of communities fighting for years to get what these funds are designated to provide-----and still are fighting.
Smith from Baltimore County would do well to simply demand that CSX install and update Rail Road crossings and enhance their properties for public safety for example. Under his term as county executive these kinds of transportation issues were prevalent. He was also involved with the Port of Baltimore privatization and expansion as a global port....a disaster for citizens and Chesapeake Bay. So, not much public interest public transportation out of Jim Smith the county executive.
Maryland’s Transportation Enhancement Program Offers Funding to Public Art Projects
TRANSPORTATION ENHANCEMENTS PROGRAM EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE
Staff: Douglas H. Simmons (410) 545-0411; e-mail: email@example.com
Chair: James T. Smith, Jr., Secretary of Transportation
Transportation Enhancement Activities
The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) replaced the Transportation Enhancement (TE) Activities with the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).
The Transportation Enhancement (TE) activities offered funding opportunities to help expand transportation choices and enhance the transportation experience through 12 eligible TE activities related to surface transportation, including pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and safety programs, scenic and historic highway programs, landscaping and scenic beautification, historic preservation, and environmental mitigation. TE projects must relate to surface transportation and must qualify under one or more of the 12 eligible categories.
Eligible Activities Transportation enhancement activity.--The term "transportation enhancement activity" means, with respect to any project or the area to be served by the project, any of the following activities as the activities relate to surface transportation:
- Provision of facilities for pedestrians and bicycles.
- Provision of safety and educational activities for pedestrians and bicyclists.
- Acquisition of scenic easements and scenic or historic sites (including historic battlefields).
- Scenic or historic highway programs (including the provision of tourist and welcome center facilities).
- Landscaping and other scenic beautification.
- Historic preservation.
- Rehabilitation and operation of historic transportation buildings, structures, or facilities (including historic railroad facilities and canals).
- Preservation of abandoned railway corridors (including the conversion and use of the corridors for pedestrian or bicycle trails).
- Inventory, control, and removal of outdoor advertising.
- Archaeological planning and research.
- Environmental mitigation--
- to address water pollution due to highway runoff; or,
- reduce vehicle-caused wildlife mortality while maintaining habitat connectivity.
- Establishment of transportation museums.
I'm not begrudging Montgomery County a great, comprehensive transportation enhancement program-----I do not begrudge the entirely refurbished VEOLA bus system or bike trails and public bike facilities-----it is what all in Maryland want. The problem is when too much of the Maryland Transportation fund goes to the Washington beltway. Remember, they already have tons of money to help fund their projects as it is their corporations that win state and local contracts and these corporations then send employees hired in Washington beltway to do work around the state. Baltimore sees more road and landscaping corporations and employees from this area than Baltimore companies. The point is -----
THESE TRUSTS ARE BEING USED WITH A LEVEL OF CORRUPTION THAT HURTS TOO MUCH OF THE REST OF THE STATE. THE PEOPLE PAYING THESE TRANSPORTATION TAXES COME MOSTLY FROM THE REST OF THE STATE.
There is plenty of money in the Transportation Trust to fund all projects in Maryland if not for the cronyism and corruption that leads to billions of dollars in revenue losses every year.
Commissions and Committees=====KEEP THEM LOCAL!
Maryland Officials Pitch Capital Bikeshare Expansion To Residents
Tuesday, June 25, 2013 - 11:26 AM By Matt Bush : WAMU
All this week Montgomery County officials are speaking with residents about the upcoming expansion of the D.C.'s bike share program into the county later this summer.
Fifteen stations are planned for the Bethesda-Friendship Heights area, and on Monday night, county and Capital Bikeshare officials unveiled those locations to area residents, taking feedback and answering questions.
This is why the citizens of Maryland have no voice or the ability to have regular community meetings with open debate and discussion on public policy. People are appointed as head of these committees who will make sure policy discussion follows the neo-liberal or neo-con goal. Look below to see these committees and commissions and think----almost every category has Maryland last in results as regards public interest.
